There are times when the wafting warmth that causes our sublime heart to momentarily melt into a free-flowing fluid of guileless essence, that characterizes romantic feelings, is not the virtue of beauty but the beauty of virtue. There are times when virtue makes a woman appear more lovely and beautiful than she really is. For a truth, virtue is superior to beauty because it has a greater life span and it’s indestructible by the timeless elements of time and nature. No wonder some men, by the sheer force of the subtle superiority of virtue, have found themselves blossoming in the noiseless bosom of women who, although are not gifted with physical beauty, are blessed with the sufficient dose of this aromatic in Continue reading WHEN VIRTUE SPEAKS BEAUTY KEEPS QUIET by Atilola Samuel
14th July, 2013, I sat right in front of my television set, and watched as a young sixteen year old girl delivered one of the most courageous speeches I ever listened to, during a United Nations General Assembly. Each word she uttered on that international podium gyrated with bravery. I rose in ovation at the end of her delivery as I do not think any world leader could have been more inspiring than Malala Yousafzai. (I love that girl).
The UN declared 14th July of every year #MalalaDay.
This superlative young girl defied the bullets of discouragement Continue reading #PAUSIBILITY: MR PRESIDENT, IN LOCO PARENTIS by Adebayo Coker
Someday, the little mama and dada’s girls will be a shadow of what they used to be. Their once fragile heart becoming as hardened as diamond and their trauma-tested wills mounting into an Continue reading CHIBOK: WHEN TEARS NO LONGER AVAIL by Adejuwon Grace Oluwawemimo
By principle, a man that cannot protect his neighbor is himself in a big security mess.
When GEJ ordered Eagle One to Paris rather than Chibok, he was not doing the unstated; he already hinted during his last media chat that Shekau and his boys will kill anyone that ventures Sambisa. I must doff my hat for the men and women that are still living in that village of terror, Chibok; they are stronger than this CinC with all of his appurtenances of military might combined with the strength of the international allies. Even when GEJ had the opportunity to get grasp of the situation by granting just few minutes’ audience to the protesters of #BringBackOurGirls in Abuja yesterday which could have placed him on a better pedestal with the people, he blew it. Those of you that think you are helping this guy, there is God o! Continue reading #PAUSIBILITY: RECLAIMING CHIBOK by Adebayo Coker
If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up, it dies
and it ceases to be what you love.
So, if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation. – Osho
Big yansh! Showy yansh!! Taking a passive walk around a community, where young gentlemen and ladies usually congregate or patrol in an active hour; to and fro classrooms, libraries, laboratories, dormitories and or houses, one (average guy, pastor or the other) is bound to behold beautiful, scintillating, romance-stimulating (you-know-what-I-mean? more of it!) figures (Big yansh! Showy yansh!!) that tend to be attractive anywhere your face turns (and it turns often enough). Believe me, irrespective of who you are or how religious you are, your eyes are beings of their own, they must see. One wonders why people don’t flee (no accusation of being literal here, please) at such sights, in spite of the warning in the scriptures of one of the modern religions.
